Tuesday 8th June 2010 – Evening

17:15 > 17:45
17c Broken cloud clearing after heavy rain.

A new pit is being dug to the east of what had been the ‘Dip’ and the main area of water. The former area now almost devoid of water bar the diminishing wader pool, the now closed off inlet (now flooded) and an odd patch here and there replenished after rain but with the summer warming up I doubt these will last long.

However at least three Little Ringed Plover remain while the same number of Little Egrets still find something to hunt for in the shallows. Over at the silt lake the pair of Gadwall and Tufted Duck were found, whether they are stayers is still debatable.
